Favorite Photo Friday - "It's Almost Christmas"

December 21, 2012

Let's Make A Plan BLOG
These final days leading up to Christmas, although hectic, are usually the most fun.

We Love Nutcrackers BLOG
The girls are as anxious as can be as they anticipate the big day!

Sarah and the Xmas Tree Collage
Monday morning I finished up my Christmas cards, Tuesday I picked up the last few gifts I needed, Wednesday I built one giant Barbie Dream House and wrapped all of the gifts.

Kneeling with the Nutcracker BLOG
This might be a first for me......
I am usually scrambling until Christmas Eve, but somehow I finished ahead of schedule this year
and now I can actually enjoy the next few days with my family.

Head on Hand Mixing BLOG
The only thing left on my "to do" list is to bake and cook all of our food for our holiday meals!

We already have our bag of special reindeer food to spread on the lawn before we go to bed on Christmas Eve but we still need some cookies for Santa. That is going to be our priority today when the girls get home from school.

Today is their last day and then we are officially on Christmas holiday....HOORAY!
Happy Holidays Everyone....enjoy your weekend!

the long road

THIS is the very BEST part...watching those gorgeous faces anticipate the magic and joy of Christmas.

So happy you are DONE (well, almost!) and that you can enjoy this wonderful time of year.

I love you,


Can you please put the brakes on these gorgeous girls growing up? I can't stand how big they are getting. xoxo

Love the first pic too!
(in truth, I love all of them!)
I think Tuesday is the perfect day for Christmas Day, gives loads of lead-in time, to relax and bake, yum!

Krista said...

You're ahead of the game for sure, sister. I haven't wrapped one thing yet.

I think Mia and I will be making some cookies this weekend, too. Enjoy this time with those sweet girls!

PS. Got your card. Spectacular!
